The Shiraz Republic couldn’t be more excited to host Australian music legends, The Bushwackers as part of their 50th anniversary tour this May.

As soon as the word got out to our local music fans, stories of Bushwackers gigs attended over the years have been shared in anticipation of what lays ahead! Don’t miss out on what’s sure to be one of the most memorable nights of the year. Book yourself a ticket and come and join in for the sing-a-longs, dancing, memories and good times all the while getting to enjoy your favourite Shiraz Republic wine, sSpritzer or our @cornellabrewery beer.

Now in their 50th year, The Bushwackers are led by the mighty lagerphone of Dobe Newton and the musical direction of Roger Corbett. Both are joined onstage with a great team of musicians wielding fiddles, accordions, mandolins, guitars, bass and drums. Their shows are filled with an enthusiastic diversity of fans who dance, sing and enjoy this unique Australian music.

The Bushwackers play Australian music, much of it based on the traditional folk and working songs from the early 20th century, infused with their own brand of contemporary subject matter and instrumentation.

With a laconic, distinctive Australian sound, Dobe Newton and Roger Corbett voice 50 years of songs, tunes and dance calls. As much as the music has changed, the spirit of the songs and stories that inspired the first Bushwackers have not.

Tickets are seated and cost $30pp. Seating is at tables so make sure to buy your tickets as a group and we’ll sit you together!
